We were glad we booked a table and were worried when we walked in to a bar with loads of huge tvs but luckily round the corner were loads of lovely tables and wait staff to bring us yummy food. Kind of like british pub food, my sister has a small appetite so only ordered an appetiser, and the rest... More

Came here with friends after a long day of exploring the sites for my birthday. Had food and drinks to start the night. It was really quiet when we began but then they opened up the floor and the dancing began. It was so awesome!

The food was great! They had a burger special and cold beer on a hot Washington, DC day. What more could you ask for?

got a tip from the concierge to hit this place for brunch. We loved it here! Great background tunes, laid back atmosphere, tons of Alice in Wonderland art, and good food. Bottomless mimosas ($12) are free flowing. Large, filling portions and got some nice items - Tostadas Rancheras were excellent, a pair at the table got the Hangover Helper and... More

We went for a late dinner, right before the transition into the "weekend night crowd". Which was perfect. It's in a great location if you're looking for a night on the town. We were seated for dinner, the service was pleasant and efficient. The food was excellent. We were one of the last ones eating (having worked in the industry... More

I can't speak for their food, but we had a good time at happy hour. It's a great location in Dupont Circle. The first floor bar was pretty crowded so we went upstairs. It was a comfortable atmosphere with a nice selection and very reasonable prices. The Alice in Wonderland theme was pretty cool and not too overbearing. We will... More

Very fun place to spend and evening. I visited the Mad Hatter twice during my most recent trip to DC. Both nights (Wednesday and Thursday nights) the place was jumping. The bartenders were efficient at best and somewhat rude at worst. Thursday night there was a VERY young crowd, mostly recent college graduates and it was very loud.

The tostada breakfast was delicious and came quickly but it took quite some time before we could get the attention of a server who, although not our server, did graciously take our order. The food is worth a return
